By Reporter, The HighLand Times, Wednesday January 10 2018

Recent sheep worrying incident in the Glenbrittle area of the island.

Two sheep were killed in the incident on the afternoon of Friday, January 5.

A large dog, black and tan in colour, was seen in the area at the time.

Police Officers are also keen to speak to the driver of a green Land Rover which was also seen at the time.

Officers are appealing for information and also urging dog owners to keep their animals under control.

Commenting Sergeant Andrew Shaw said:

"Dog owners are reminded that allowing dogs to chase livestock or be at large among livestock is an offence. 

"Livestock owners are legally entitled to protect their animals as necessary, which can result in the destruction of the dog if necessary to protect the lives of other animals.

"It is requested that any person with information on this contact Police Scotland on 101, quoting reference NP131/18, or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”
